Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
Hi- I bought a used 2001 VW Beetle about 8 months ago and it has been driving and acting fine until yesterday it decided not to start. I drove it in the morning and came back a few hours later and it will not turn over. There was above a 1/4 tank of gas so I am assuming it is not the gas gage, and we tried to jump it and still nothing. All the lights come on it just will not turn over. I recently drove through a day of rain and was in the midst of a few days of smoke and ash from the SoCal fires so could these two have something to do with it?
I have a 2001 VW Beetle Turbo. My girlfriend was driving it and it was driving hard, it stalled out on her and won't start back. I have tried to coast start it and nothing. It sounds like it is turning over but not actually trying to start. I have about 8 codes that show up.
Does anyone have a clue! Please help!

Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.
Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
